My husband and I treated ourselves to a weekend stay at SHSC in Aug 09 and loved it there. The facility itself (hike in) is beautiful. The grounds are impeccably clean. The tent cabins are decorated so nicely and the beds were very comfortable. The outdoor shower after a long hot day of hiking was the best shower ever. The... More

We spent 3 nights here the weekend of July 24 and had a completely wonderful experience. The atmosphere was relaxed and beautiful, the food was exceptional (the chef is incredibly creative, with each of the 5 courses every night truly special), and the location just can't be beat. Perfect timing, as the wildflowers were out full force, so every hike... More

The location is great, the food is really great, the hot showers are wonderful of course. The beds are uncomfortable- I've slept much better on a camping pad. The "king" beds are actually two twins pushed together, so at night when it's cold and you want to snuggle with your partner, it's extremely awkward. Did not feel that the room... More

Though SHSC likely began as a luxury camping experience, now the owners are cutting corners in a big way, even though rates are up 20% from last year. Plusses: Incredible location. Far from the madding crowd. Warm friendly helpful staff. Good food. Plenty of hot water. Showers open to sky. Minuses: Despite advertising claims, do not expect luxury. Everything is... More

We were looking for a fun escape from our work lives. We did not find that here. Summary: I will not return Staff: Terrific and helpful. The food was amazing. Price: Expensive at $500/night for my wife and me. Includes food but not wine. Management: Extremely unprofessional and unwelcoming experience Food: Exceptional Accommodations: Pretty good, in a decent location; but... More

Appropriate behavior is expected from our guests. We did have to address the behavior of one group of guests last summer because they were disturbing everyone else staying at the camp. More

We had read about the High Sierra Camp in Sunset Magazine and decided to give it a try. We fit the magazine's description of the perfect prospect for the camp - former backpackers who'd grown used to luxury. We found the camp a wonderful vacation. The gourmet dinners were a wonder, the comraderie of the campers enjoyable, the welcoming iced... More

A friend and I , both avid hikers, felt that Sequoia High Sierra Camp combined the best of two worlds: the serenity of an isolated backcountry tent camp along with luxurious comforts and fine cuisine. And it was only a one-mile hike from where we parked the car at the end of the paved road to reach our eco-friendly camp.... More

Just got back from a weekend with friends to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday at the Sequoia High Sierra Camp. We went up with 5 other couples and everyone has raved about what an amazing weekend they had. The location is breathtaking. The camp was great.

What a lost opportunity the owners of this accommodation have assumed. The property itself is beautiful, the food and Rome-imported chef amazing, but....definitely overpriced for the quality of the sleeping quarters and a few other aspects: 1. The "Queen Beds" are, to begin with, NOT Queen mattresses, but simply two very uncomfortable Twin bed mattresses pushed together, allowing for one... More

We just got back from a weekend stay at the camp. Everything started out great--weather, initial contact and welcome from staff, first dinner Friday night where we indulged in an excellent meal and had the chance to meet some new friends. The food overall, especially dinner, is what truly makes this place. And for that, we were not let down,... More

There are two sides to every story. Appropriate behavior is an expectation of our guests, and when there are multiple complaints about extremely intoxicated guests that are keeping them up LATE into the night screaming and yelling, and when those guests are asked several times (to no avail) to please be respectful of the other guests, the Camp's management did...
